I have test coming up end of January and I've been diligently studying to refresh my memory and keep my mind sharp as I graduated high school in 96. I was curious if anyone has info on the level of Algebra needed to score well? I have been studying using library book and Kahn Academy via YouTube. I have worked up to algebraic fractions, simplifying, factoring quadratic equations. Next is roots, slopes, functions.

I am hoping to score very well and really impress them in my interview. I have installed 200amp service and passed inspection, run circuit to and wired shed via digging trench and using UF wire, done some wiring on 3phase panel, retrofit a 2gang switch to a 3 gang switch, added dimmer, fished wire to 4 new recessed lights where no lights existed and patched drywall where had to cut out to fish through on plate. I am completely self taught but I don't do shady work. I follow code and an detail oriented. I am knowledgeable nmbut would be going into program as I know nothing and soaking in anything that can be taught like a sponge! I have a true passion for electrical and am doing all I can to land an apprenticeship. Any pointers are greatly appreciated!

Nothing to worry about ever there. Drugs aren't my thing!

usually toward the basic end of algebra. Portsmouth has a great reputation. don't worry your very likely to get in. your in my region we are in need of apprentices. if for some chance you don't get in this time, which i would think you would, re apply if you still want in. you will eventually get in. good luck, might see you on a job one day

Thanks man, I appreciate it! Just looking to get in and soak everything in like a sponge. From what I've read it's about a month after passing test until you may get interview? How long if they like you before you're official?

usually within a month, and then you go out to work whenever contractors call out apprentices and get down to you on this list, there is a power house going on around cincy so i'm not sure but i would imagine you would get out fairly quick

Can't seem to send PM. Do you have to have so many posts before option is available or some sort?

I was told I had to take a drug test so I took one of every thing and a double hit on the bong just to be sure I passed.
